The '''Moravian Church in North America''' is part of the worldwide Moravian Church
Unity. It dates from the arrival of the first Moravian missionaries to the United States
in 1735, from their Herrnhut
settlement in present-day Saxony
. They came to minister to the scattered German immigrants, to the Native Americans and to enslaved Africans. They founded communities to serve as home bases for these missions. The missionary "messengers" were financially supported by the work of the "laborers" in these settlements.
Currently, there are more than 60,000 members.
